1. I was inspired to start blogging as a way to document my outfits. I have loved fashion since very little, and love to re invent ways to wear my clothes. I decided to pursue blogging to give others ideas and inspiration.
2. My smile
3. I'm more of an introvert but because of my job, I have become an extrovert. I have been in pharmaceutical sales for 7+ years. It really takes an extrovert to sell in this industry.
4. I really like J's Everyday Fashion and Penny Pincher Fashion. I love their style, but most importantly they make it affordable. I am starting to really enjoy reading DIY blogs as well as thrift ing idea blogs. I love how women are able to dress great, and their outfits don't cost a fortune.
5. I would love to stay in the pharmaceutical industry. One goal of mine is to sell in the oncology field. (I sell in the cardiovascular field now). I woud love to sell medicines that truly make a difference in a patient's life. My family has been affected by cancer and I understand the pain, but also the faith and hope that omes from it.
6. In school, I did better in math than science. But now all I deal with is science. Some classes I would like to take for personal pursuit are photography and sewing.
7. I love Clinique and Mary Kay for make up. I love Cover Girl mascara and Mac eyeliners and lipsticks.
8. I don't know if I have a fear. I put my faith in God and I know that He is with me even when I walk through fear. There are many things that scared me deeply, but He has always been there to get me through it.
9. I listen to all kinds of music- Christian, country, hip hop, salsa, merengue, rock and pop and others.
10. I don't consider myself a morning person, but I get so much accomplished when I'm up early. So I'm usually up early.
11. Between 7-8 hours.
